Patriotic deputies sent to the General Prosecutor's request, which was asked to clarify the conformity of transportation card "Troika" of the Russian legislation. The Prosecutor's office promised to investigate.
The Troika card allows to put her cash and then pay the fare in public transport in Moscow. Hence, formally, it can be considered not a travel document, and the electronic payment facility, consider Patriotic deputies. Consequently, the Troika is subject to the law "On state payment system" and must answer it.
In this regard, the Deputy Andrei Krutov appealed to the Prosecutor with a request to clarify the work of the Department of transport of Moscow. He expresses the opinion that, by law, for work travel, it was necessary to register a non-banking credit company and get the proper license, or to employ the system operating banks. None of this, however, was not created. "Virtually emission of cards "three" illegal banking activity", - quote "Izvestia" Deputy.
"If deteriorated or been stolen Bank card, then by all means the owner will be saved, even if the Bank at that time withdrew the license. And if for some reason you are spoiled card "Troika", the native will lose all funds. Also, it is impossible to obtain an extract and find out adequately been debited from her cash. Additionally, you cannot challenge a particular operation. Because you need to enter the "Troika" in the framework of the law," said Krutov.
In the Moscow diptrans the current scheme of the card is considered legitimate. "Legal scheme for payment of the "Troika" of city services worked together with experts from the Higher school of Economics. Card has established itself as a successful and trendy tool for transportation services. All monies paid for the tickets of urban transport, get on your Bank account transport operators in accordance with the requirements of the legislation on the circulation of money", - emphasized in the public relations Department.
Experts, however, have a different opinion on this. "This is a traditional prepaid card funds. Because, by law, must be registered with the payment system or a payment must take place through the Bank. Funny, though, how it was formed and still exists. Transportation card in the other regions are long established through the Bank - for example, payments suburban map "Arrow" serves Sberbank", - told Vice-President of SMP Bank Helena Yard.
